Comments Off on COCKED: Sam Trammell on Brotherly Drama, Playing with Fire, and Amazon’s Pilot Process

cocked-amAmazon’s latest pilot season is nearing its end, and a handful of new original (potential) shows are competing for your attention.

To get a little more insight into COCKED — and the Amazon pilot process — I spoke with series co-creator Samuel Baum to see what he could share (slight spoilers for the COCKED pilot, so if you haven’t watched it yet, check it out here)
